Remembering Sam Wyche Saying, “You Don’t Live in Cleveland”

Sam Wyche passed away on January 2, 2020.  Wyche learned under Bill Walsh, was known as an offensive innovator and quite a character.  Furthermore, Wyche was the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tampa  Bay Buccaneers.   His best years were in Cincinnati, which included a Super Bowl XXIII appearance (the Bengals lost to Walsh’s 49ers 20-16).

Below is a video from WLWT Cincinnati, in regards to Wyche’s most famous quote, “Will the next person that sees anybody throw anything onto this field, point ’em out, and get ’em out of here. You don’t live in Cleveland, you live in Cincinnati!”
